Retrieved 11 July Poirot turns him down, but the next morning, whilst the train is stuck in a snowdrift in Serbia, Ratchett is found stabbed to death.
There is vague talk of a man seen fleeing the train, but many of the passengers in Poirot's compartment do not appear to know either Ratchett or each other, so what could the motive be?
Poirot, assisted by Bouc and Dr. Constantine, attempts to find out. Written by don minifie David Suchet gives a towering and commanding performance as famed Belgium detective Hercule Poirot in this latest version of "Murder on the Orient Express" based on the novel by Dame Agatha Christie.
There is such fire and passion in Suchet's eyes that I scarcely recognized his Poirot from the other times he has performed Poirot throughout his many years in this role.
I literally could not take my eyes off of him. This version of Murder on the Orient Express chooses to focus on the character of Poirot, his belief in justice, and his inner turmoil on how to reconcile the solution to the mystery with his own values.
This is done rather than focus on the glamorous suspects on the train, which has been done in other versions. As the reality of who the murderer or murderers becomes clear, Poirot becomes visibly weary at the path that lay before him.
Will he make an exception and let the murderer or murderers go? Suchet knows the inner workings of Poirot's mind so intimately from having played the character more times than any other actor in history that he is explosive on the screen as he portrays Poirot's soul in turmoil.
Suchet's performance is the reason to watch this version. My one criticism that prevents me from giving the film a 10th star, is the use of religion as something that would enter Poirot's consideration.
The film conveniently omits reference to Poirot's reference to his "little gray cells" because the logical mind of Hercule Poirot is not affected by religious considerations.
I believe that Suchet could have portrayed Poirot's inner conflict with a secular opposition to murder as the break down of society.
In this film, Poirot says as much when he savagely defends the rule of law to prevent man from descent into anarchy on the train.
The introduction that Poirot was a Catholic was a cheap shortcut to clarify Poirot's decision as to what to do with the murderer or murderers at the end.
Instead of using Catholicism, Poirot's open and often spoken belief in the value of life could have been used to justify Poirot's final decision.
Regardless of the screenwriter's choice to make Poirot unnecessarily ultra religious even going so far as to have Poirot clutching rosary beads in the last shot of the film , I strongly recommend this version of Murder on the Orient Express to your kind attention.

Following the end of the war, normal services resumed except on the Athens leg, where the closure of the border between Yugoslavia and the Kingdom of Greece prevented services from running.
That border re-opened in , but the closure of the Bulgarian — Turkish border from to prevented services running to İstanbul during that time. As the Iron Curtain fell across Europe, the service continued to run, but the Communist nations increasingly replaced the Wagon-Lits cars with carriages run by their own railway services.
This was replaced in by a slower service called the Direct Orient Express, which ran daily cars from Paris to Belgrade, and twice weekly services from Paris to İstanbul and Athens.
In , the Wagon-Lits company stopped running carriages itself and making revenues from a ticket supplement.
Instead, it sold or leased all its carriages to the various national railway companies, but continued to provide staff for the carriages.
The withdrawal of the Direct Orient Express was thought by many to signal the end of the Orient Express as a whole, but in fact a service under this name continued to run from Paris to Bucharest as before via Strasbourg, Munich, and Budapest.
However, a through sleeping car from Paris to Bucharest — and even eastwards from Vienna — was only operated until , and also a through seating car was only operated seasonally.
This meant, that Paris—Budapest and Vienna—Bucharest coaches were running overlapped, so a journey was only possible with changing carriages — despite the unchanged name and numbering of the train.
In the Budapest-Bucharest leg of the train was canceled, the new final station has become Budapest. In the summer season of and a sleeping car from Bucharest to Paris reappeared twice a week — now operated by CFR.
This continued until , when the service was cut back to just Paris— Vienna , already in EuroNight quality — but in both cases the coaches were in fact rather attached to a Paris— Strasbourg express.
This service continued daily, listed in the timetables under the name Orient Express , until June 8, In the last years through coaches between Vienna and Karlsruhe continuing first to Dortmund , then to Amsterdam , and finally — partly from Budapest — to Frankfurt were attached.
The last train with the name Orient-Express now with a hyphen departed from Vienna on the 10th of December , and one day later from Strasbourg.
Though the final service ran only from Strasbourg to Vienna , it was possible to retrace the entire original Orient Express route with four trains: Paris—Strasbourg, Strasbourg—Vienna, Vienna— Belgrade , and Belgrade- İstanbul , each of which were operated daily.
Other routes from Paris to İstanbul exist even today, such as Paris— Munich — Budapest — Bucharest —İstanbul, or Paris—Zürich—Belgrade—İstanbul, all of which have comparable travel times of approximately 60 hours without delays.
The luxurious dining car, where scenes for Murder on the Orient Express and other films were filmed, is now in the OSE museum of Thessaloniki.
The local authorities plan to refit the train to make it available for tourist use around the Balkans in the near future. In , the th anniversary of the Orient-Express was celebrated by a trip of this train from Paris to İstanbul, and in it was run to Hong Kong via the Soviet Union and China.
From there it was transferred by ferry to Japan , and used there for some excursions after regauging. After the failure of the American European Express see below , Intraflug became bankrupt, and the carriages were taken over by the Reisebüro Mittelthurgau.
The sleeping cars and some other coaches Pullmans, dining cars, luggage vans were transferred to Russia and used between Moscow and the Mongolian-Chinese border.
The remaining vehicles were used in Germany and Switzerland as diner trains until the company's bankruptcy. The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express is the most storied set of carriages in the world.
